Chemistry Supplies?

  1. Jan 19, 2005 #1
    Does anyone know of a good website for ordering chemistry supplies?
    Things like beakers, tubes, burners, etc., including various chemicals.

    I'd like to set up a small "home lab" to aid my self-study but I have no idea where to go for these supplies.

    you can find just about anything you would want there, and alot of the time, it is cheaper than the chemical supply companies.

    but if you insist on an actual buisness to supply you needs, then,

    Sigma provides a lot of chemicals, but that's geared toward professional labs. You should be able to find what you need at Fisher's education site:

    Keep in mind, it gets expensive quickly. mrjeffy's suggestion of trying ebay, at least for the glassware, is a good one. I'd be more hesitant to buy chemicals through ebay though.
